This week-end my #1 and I decided to have some fun...we hit the road and headed for Seattle!
Last year around this time we had celebrated our anniversary in Seattle.
It was so much fun, I wanted to go back.
My favorite place was Pikes Place.
I wanted flowers...they have some amazing bouquets for what I feel was quite inexpensive.
Last year oh...around the 7th of June, they had oodles of Peonies, one of my favorites.
This year we went a few weeks earlier and tulips were the flower to be seen everywhere.
I grabbed a few bouquets!
Oh, if I was closer this would be my weakness.
The flowers transported wonderfully, I was so pleased!
Look at all those beautiful flowers!
There is even one Peony!
One of my favorite tulips there was the "Renowned Unique" Tulip.
I had to buy them, they look so much like Peonies, they are thick and luscious!
They haven't actually opened up yet so it will be fun to see what they look like once that happens.
Apparently, they are hard to grow as they are so tall and get so heavy they topple over.
As you can see they are quite tall, I cut off about 2" when I got home.
They could still be cut off a little more but this gives you an idea of their size.
So, if you're in the Seattle area I'd highly recommend Pikes Place.
I think you'll have a lot of fun!
